This past Friday, Elon Musk, the new Twitter CEO, stated that he would stand in support of Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in the 2024 presidential run should the governor make the choice to dive into the race.
Musk issued these statements via his recently acquired social media platform while responding to a tweet about how the political Left devolved into a wave of frothing anger at him allowing former President Donald Trump back on the platform after he was officially kicked off the platform back in January of 2021.
“I’m fine with Trump not tweeting,” stated Musk. “The important thing is that Twitter correct a grave mistake in banning his account, despite no violation of the law or terms of service. Deplatforming a sitting President undermined public trust in Twitter for half of America.”
“As a reminder, I was a significant supporter of the Obama-Biden presidency and (reluctantly) voted for Biden over Trump,” Musk went on. “But freedom of speech is the bedrock of a strong democracy and must take precedence. My preference for the 2024 presidency is someone sensible and centrist. I had hoped that would the case for the Biden administration, but have been disappointed so far.”
Another question was posed of Musk, “Would you support Ron DeSantis in 2024, Elon?”
The billionaire answered, “Yes.”

Musk marked the Floridian Governor this past June as a possible candidate that he wants to see take the oval office but stopped just slightly short of a wholesale endorsement.
Musk unveiled this choice directly after tweeting that he had chosen to stand with the Republican candidate that had made history Tuesday evening out in south Texas.
“I voted for Mayra Flores – first time I ever voted Republican,” stated Musk. “Massive red wave in 2022.”
When questioned by various people online about who he was more in favor of supporting for the upcoming presidential election in 2024, Musk quickly answered, “DeSantis.”
“I supported Yang last time, but DeSantis has a better chance of winning,” the billionaire went on to add.
